Boston Sports Trends

February 24, 2014

Things have been pretty good for the local teams over the past 13 years. The Patriots and Red Sox have won a combined six championships since January 2002. After some lean years, the Celtics and Bruins both won championships and made multiple finals appearances in the past six years.

I wanted to quantify the successes and failures of our local teams through the years so I looked at winning percentages and playoff success between 1975 and 2013. FYI: Football and basketball seasons were assigned to the calendar year in which they ended while football seasons were assigned to the year in which they started. Baseball, of course, starts and ends in the same calendar year. Here are the results:
